For my colleagues today, I thought it would be fun to make a few Valentines. I wasn’t sure what to do this year, and then I saw a simple idea on one of the Martha Stewart pages here.
After gathering some lollypops and some colored paper, I thought it would be brilliant to cut some heart shapes out of the paper using both the scissors and a hole punch. I then glued all of the shapes together and hole punched the main larger hearts. Sliding the heart “petals” up the stem of the lollypop and securing on the reverse side with tape (being careful to NOT tape the paper on the lolly) I think they made some cute flowers.
Next time, I think I’ll try making some with words on them (like fun Valentine’s Day slogans or something), or maybe adding some other features like ribbons. Otherwise, I would say this is a great craft for the kids too!
